Re: 4 yr old son Dxed w/ADHD today
A few things I wanted to mention about his behavior also are that he is a head banger, when he gets mad, he will bang his head on anything near him, be it carpeted floor, concrete, wood furniture, it doesn't matter, he has done that since he was about 1 1/2. He also has a couple of speech impediments, slight echolalia and a slight stutter, neither of them are very bad, but they are there. Another thing is discipline, it has no effect, if he does something, we discipline him, he turns around and does it again immediately, we discipline, he turns around and does it again, etc...
It's a viscious circle. He act like he just doesn't understand what the meaning of discipline is and what the meaning of the wrong-doing is.
